Good morning friends.
How is it that April is already moving so speedily along? There is so much to plan and anticipate, so much to take off my plate, and other tasks to put on it. It’s the twins birthday month which, in the past, has meant sewing and planning for celebrations. This year we are simply planning a special family activity for each birthday without a gathering. And I’m pretty excited about that. New memories and new adventures await the birthday girls.
I do already know that at least for my Annabelle, jelly beans will be making an appearance on her birthday cake. I’ve known about this request for about 9 months. And every breakfast I make that she likes is added to her list of “birthday breakfast” requests.
And with food in mind (which is always on my mind these days) here is this week’s menu:
Breakfast- Sauteed veggie, cheese, and sausage omelets
Breakfast- cocoa peanut butter cereal
Lunch- packed lunch on our hike: our coconut larabars, apples, cheese sticks, beef jerky, celery + peanut butter
Dinner- “Rice” bowls: crockpot pork carnitas, avocado, fresh tomato, and sour cream topped cauliflower “rice” + creamy avocado ranch salad
Breakfast- Chocolate banana smoothies on-the-go (vanilla protein powder, cocoa powder, bananas, ice, vanilla extract, pinch of cinnamon and salt)
Lunch- Help Bobby at his food show
Dinner- Grilled Rueben sandwiches (deli corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, homemade thousand island dressing) on remaining bread, sliced pickle, + Crispy Baked Parmesan Green Bean Fries
